Meridians: The Body’s Energy Pathways| Nadis| Energy Healing

For centuries the ancient wisdom keepers and healers in several traditions had a keen understanding of the energetic body. The healing traditions from China, India, Japan and Tibet, as well as other countries all spoke of energy channels, meridians or nadis along which the vital energy flowed.

meridiansLife was considered to be a bio-electrical and vibrational energy phenomenon and so health revolved around balancing energy through various means. Life existed because of life force and energy running through and animating the body, ensuring we can move, breathe, digest food, think and even feel.

This vital life force or chi, is composed of two kinds of forces, yin and yang, and flows along a sophisticated network of energy pathways, or highways, circuiting the body. Over 2000 years ago ancient cultures knew of the existence of these energy channels. They were called ‘sen’ in Thailand, ‘nadis’ in India, ‘meridians’, ‘channels’ or ‘vessels’ in China and Japan, and ‘channels’ in Tibet. In India, where many eastern healing arts developed, there were said to be 72 000 nadis or energy pathways. Disease is believed to be a blockage in the energy flow of these channels. A range of healing traditions, including acupuncture, acupressure, massage and yoga, are founded on the principle of the existence of energy channels or pathways, known as meridians, or nadis, running around the body in an expansive network.

MERIDIANS are a major concept in Chinese Medicine.

Chinese Medicine practitioners help people to become healthy again, and to remain healthy, utilizing herbs and physical medicine, such as acupuncture, acupressure, and tuina.  Rather than relying on anatomy and physiology in the Western sense, Chinese medicine focuses on how the energy flows throughout the body.

Accidental discovery leads to a comprehensive approach to healing.

Thousands of years ago, they discovered that energy flows in an orderly manner through channels they called meridians. Moreover, the flow of energy could be influenced by putting pressure and/or heat on points along these channels.  They named these points acupoints.

Lore has it that some soldiers pierced by arrows during battle noticed that some of their old ailments disappeared.  Over time, these points were mapped, leading to the discovery of this network of energy pathways, the meridians.

The meridian system may be likened to the electric wiring in our homes and businesses.

A Western analogy might be the electrical wiring in our homes and businesses that carries electricity to wall outlets where we plug in our home, business, and recreation appliances, and to the light sockets where we screw in our light bulbs.  Only, the meridian system is much more sophisticated and versatile.

The meridians form a complicated circuit of energy pathways that move up and down the body near the surface, but also enter deep into the body to connect with each other and supply the organs, and other body structures, with energy.

Energy can flow smoothly and orderly, or it can get stuck in places, leaving some places oversupplied and others undersupplied.  Where we have too much energy, we experience heat, congestion, and pain or discomfort.  Where the energy is low, we feel tired, cold, and weak..

When stimulating the acupoints with needles (acupuncture), finger tips (acupressure), or heat & herbs (moxa), the energy starts flowing again and the entire system becomes energetically more balanced.  That’s the general idea behind acupuncture, or acupressure.

Western medicine acknowledges that acupuncture can be very helpful for pain management.  However, acupuncture can help with many conditions by helping to balance the flow of energy.

The meridians are a physical component of our bodies.

The meridians appear to be embedded in the connective tissue, which weaves through and envelops every cell, tissue, and organ, as well as body structures, such as blood and lymph vessels, nerves, and meridians.

Connective tissue (fascia, tendons, ligaments, etc) can vary from a gel like substance to hard as bone.  In fact, bone is considered a specialized form of connective tissue.  Connective tissue binds structures together, creates space (compartments) for all the structures, and moves (conducts) body fluids, nerve stimuli, and energy through it.

We cannot see meridians with our bare eyes, or feel their structures with our bare hands.  However, the meridians have been visualized  (Pierre de Vernejoul, 1985, University of Paris) by injecting a radioactive dye into the meridian points and observing the dye move along the paths that the Chinese Medicine practitioners had mapped out thousands of years ago.  Moreover, the experiment confirmed that the energy flows only in one direction within a meridian.

The meridians bring primal energy to every cell in our bodies.

Energy supports life.  Without it, nothing moves.  The body’s cells make their own energy every moment of life in their energy factories, called mitochondria.  However, they can not do so without being energized themselves by some form of primal energy source.  That is the mystery of life that we have not been able to solve yet.

Congested meridians can make the body vulnerable to many health conditions.

Some examples are fibromyalgia, allergies, asthma, lung disease, indigestion, constipation, cardiovascular disease, difficulty breathing, aches and pain, and many more.  It is therefore important to keep these energy channels free and clear.

Acupressure and acupuncture are the Chinese approach.  In the Western world, craniosacral therapy and energetic unwinding are very well suited to doing so by helping the body to release the restrictions in the connective tissue and thus help to fully open up the meridians.

The meridian system

There are 12 primary paired meridians and two single mid meridians, six yang and six yin. The yang meridians run down the body and the yin meridians flow up the body. Each meridian is also related to an element. Each meridian is most active at a certain time of the day or night and each meridian is influenced by an element or season.

The nature of meridians, in their elemental structure, and as vessels for the life force, show the intricacy and profound connection of our body at a cellular level, to the universe. We are intimately connected by the elements, energetic structure and flow of energy, to all life, at a cellular, physical level. Our earth is also said to have energetic pathways or ley lines, akin to meridians.

How are meridians related to health?

Our bodies need balance. A balanced flow or energy, not too much or too little, is conducive to good health. This is the same in the way we live our lives. Balance is paramount. Just enough food, water and a healthy balanced lifestyle. As the Buddha said: “middle way” or moderation in all things.

We can see this harmony and balance in life, as the balance between the energies of yin and yang – or more simplistically, masculine and feminine – the two opposing and catalyzing energies of the universe.

In our bodies we need balance, not too much or too little. Our health is vibrant if there is harmony and balance between these two forces in the body. If the balance is disturbed, and the flow of one of these forces becomes greater than the other, then illness arises. These forces or energies flow through very definite channels in the body, or meridians, and these are the body’s healing energy pathways.

In traditional Indian medicine, the meridians are expanded upon.There are nadis found within the physical body and these nadis make up the nervous system, the circulatory system, the digestive system, the respiratory system, the lymphatic systems, etc. Any blockages in these nadis can result in physical health conditions. Nadis can also be found in the subtle body where they carry thoughts, feelings, and nerve impulses. When these nadis are blocked, we lose our ability to feel, and connect deeply with others, the environment and ourselves. In the same way that veins and arteries are important for the body to function, nadis weave through our physical nerves and the matrix of consciousness that circuits the mind and self, supporting our physical expression from the otherworldly dimensions of existence.

Chi is made up of two kinds of forces, yin and yang. When the flow of energy is blocked, it causes low energy and illness. Practices like yoga, meditation and energy healing work on these subtle energy channels, supporting the flow of energy through the body. According to some ancient indian texts there are 350 000 nadis or energy pathways in the body. In traditional Indian medicine and spiritual science, the energies of the physical body, the subtle body and the causal body are said to flow through the nadis. Within this framework, the nadis are said to connect at special points of intensity called nadichakras.

ida pingala sushumnaThe three most important nadis are those running along the spine: ida, pingala and sushumna. The Sushumna is the central channel of energy in the human body and it runs from the base of the spine to the crown of the head and carries kundalini energy, which is the primal evolutionary force. Kundalini is awakened through yoga and meditation and is said to lie dormant at the base of the spine. Activation of the kundalini leads to higher consciousness states. The aim of yoga is to broaden the sushumna and to unite the pathways. Purifying all three nadis leads to overall health, and wellness of body and mind, as well as spiritual growth. Various Pranayama techniques aid in helping to keep these nadi channels open.

The three most important nadis are those running along the spine: ida, pingala and sushunma.

If you are sensitive to energy and have had energy treatments, such as energy healing, you may have felt streams of energy or a flow of cold or heat, for example, up the legs or arms. This is a freeing up of energy in the meridians and the flow of energy that is released when a blockage is removed.

There are many wonderful healing modalities based on the meridian system that support radiant health. By enhancing the flow of energy through the body, balance and health is achieved and we come in touch with our true selves. Acupuncture is a therapeutic modality used in China as early as the late stone age. It was used to treat all ailments affecting people. Acupuncture did not enter modern Western consciousness until the 1970’s when China ended a period of isolation and resumed foreign political and cultural contacts.

The range of applications for energy healilng has grown slowly in the West, possibly because of the belief that it has no scientific basis.  Perhaps now with the scientific proof of meridians, energy healing will become more widespread for all ailments, along with other great healing modalities based on the energetics of the body, supporting more people to have vibrant health and wellbeing.

Spirit Entities

FAQ’s on Spirit Entities & Negative Energies | Bhuta Vidya |

How Do We Know That Spirit Entities Actually Exist?

The best argument in favor of entity existence can be found in the fact that almost all traditional societies believed in the existence of entities and had developed methods for dealing with them, beginning in ancient times and continuing forth until today.

Almost all shamanistic teachings have methods for the clearing of spirits. Ayurveda (traditional Indian medicine) was divided into eight branches, one of which (bhuta-vidya) was devoted to the science of spiritual entities. This places spirit entity clearance in this particular culture at the same level of
importance as surgery or pediatrics!

In Chinese medicine in the practice of acupuncture, among the 361 acupuncture points, we see the word KUEI (meaning discarnate spirit) making up part of the main or secondary name of 17 points, thus supporting the Chinese belief in the importance of the spirit in maintaining the health and well being of the body generally.

From the Vedas to the New Testament, there can be found many unambiguous references to the clearance of spirits and entities and many religions have technical rituals dating from ancient times for taking care of the energetic “pollution” arising from someone’s passing and work to protect the living from that circumstance.

With this in mind, we can be sure that spirit entities are not simply some kind of odd theory made up to frighten people. If anything it is our modern Western Culture that is at odds with history and all other cultures as it disregards the existence of spirits and entities to the detriment of those people who suffer mentally, emotionally and physically due to attachment.

What Is A Spirit Entity?

The basic definition of a entity of spirit is a non-physical energy parasite with some consciousness of its own which attaches to your subtle energy body just as physical parasites do (intestinal worms etc). The level of consciousness held by these beings varies with the individual as does their effect on the human (or animal) host and so the signs of spirit entity attachment are many and varied, ranging from physical aches and pains to paranoid delusion and complete spirit possession.

Where Do Spirit Entities Come From?

The origins of spirits and ghosts vary depending upon our belief system. For example, if we look at the beliefs of both the ancient Chinese and the ancient Indians, the consciousness is shattered at the time of death and this facilitates some of our energetic bodies ascend to the Spiritual realms, whilst others reincarnate into new physical vehicles. Sometimes, particularly in cases whereby death has been violent, the spirit is traumatized and disoriented and can miss it’s “window” opening in which it can be drawn to
“the light” and as such becomes trapped in the astral layer, leaving it unable to return to the Source without assistance, though they are often unaware of their trapped state and continue searching for the light which will take them to the other realms and people with a clear, bright light, (often those involved in Spiritual work or those with high abilities) commonly encounter spirit entities who have mistakenly been drawn to their light and at times become trapped in the magnetic aura or the live host before they are aware of their mistake.

Others commonly preyed upon are those suffering with addictions of any type or obsessive compulsive behaviors. These people will be sought out by spirits and entities that had similar weaknesses in their physical lives so that they may continue their addiction “by proxy”. Entities are similar to physical people in that they will tend to seek out others of like mind or interest to spend their time with and this can lead to difficulties for the unsuspecting individual.

Spirit beings can attach to both human beings and animals and at times they are not fussy as to which of these they attach to! Cases have been documented of both human hosts housing animal entities and vice

The Chinese call these fragments or entities KUEI, whilst Sanskrit calls them BHUTA (a word that translates to entity). I call them Soul Fragments. Other kinds of Soul Fragmentation can occur when a person undergoes significant trauma (such as abuse or extreme emotional pressure) which can cause the soul of that individual to actually split or fracture.

Human and animal Soul Fragments occupy a large proportion of the spirit entity attachments that Soul Retrievers come across (up to 70%), however, there are all sorts of other non-physical beings that can and do, for whatever reason, attach to the human energetic body. Some of these are referred to as
elementals, undines, devas, fairies, demons etc. Many of these beings are very tiny and as a result to not make much impact on the energies of their hosts, however, others have greater magnitude and can affect their host spectacularly.

What Do Spirit Entities Look Like?

Entities exist on a level of consciousness where shapes aren’t fixed as they are in the physical. As such, they have a chameleon like nature whereby they may appear differently to different people or even to the same person from day to day as they use their ability to shape shift and morph.

As an energy chealer, I often initially perceive a spirit entity as a darker patch or symbolic shape (sometimes geometric, other times not) in the clients energy or chakra system. Further investigation will usually uncover a more detailed perception of the spirit entities appearance as spirit entities usually try to conceal their presence for obvious reasons and also the person hosting this being may have a particular perception of it which will be revealed to the clearer as the process moves forward. Spirit entities can also manifest as a pain or an illness if the entity had that kind of affliction prior to its passing.

On non-physical levels, there are often mix-ups with senses, which means that the distinctions between non-physical light, sound and smell isn’t always clear. Entities can also sometimes be perceived as a particular non-physical smell superimposed on the clients energy. This is also the case with houses. With training, you can learn to perceive non-physical smells or feelings that reveal the presence of an entity as soon as you enter a house.

How Do The Dead Become Parasites?

When someone dies, fragments of consciousness are released during this process. This belief is found within multiple cultural and religious systems and is accompanied by rituals to counteract any negative connotations associated with this. For example, in India people burn corpses with the intention of minimizing the time between the release of the spiritual energy and the spirit’s passing over to the spiritual realm and thereby lessening the possibility of negativity escaping the corpse to cause havoc.

Indian tradition also has a number of customs related to the mourning period including dietary recommendations which are aimed specifically at protecting mourners from “catching” soul fragments after the death of a loved one. The code of Jewish Law also has similar rules to these following the death of a relative.

In writings by Homer, the only method mentioned for the disposing of corpses was burning and in many other religions (in particular the Catholic religion), ritual plays a big part following death. Among other things, these rituals are aimed at taking care of the energetic side of death and mourning and protecting the living as much as honoring the dead.

Much of the knowledge which lay in traditional lore and ancient perceptions is lost these days resulting in energetic mayhem and large numbers of people suffering as a result of entity attachment. It has been suggested that as much as 70% of the population will have been attached to spirit entities at some point during their lives and this number could even be higher.


Are Children More Or Less Vulnerable To Spirit Entities Than Adults?

Children are more vulnerable than adults to entity attachment for several reasons. The most obvious answer to this is that the energetic system of children doesn’t have the same stamina as that of adults and the next is that children are not able to rationalize.

Children can be easily terrified and psychologically traumatized by such things as an adult yelling at them, a big dog chasing them or the like and such trauma can cause the kind of major collapse of the energetic defense system which would only be experienced by an adult as the result of a major shock. This then leaves the child open to attachment by one or more spirit beings.

Children have also been known to invite spirit attachment to keep them company or protect them from something they are afraid of. This may seem to be an imaginary friend, however, in reality it is a standard fragment or entity of spirit. In cases such as these, it may be years before the person realizes that there is a problem by which time behaviors which are related to the spirit entity attachment may seem more “normal” than not both to them and also to those around them.

Can Entities Be Explained In Terms Of Mental Disorder And Can Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD) Be Related To Spirit Entity Attachment?

Entities do facilitate personality fragmentation and they do tend to give people a dual nature as the compulsions and desires of the entity are superimposed onto the person’s own desires. Sometimes these desires reinforce one another as in the case of addictions whereby a beer drinker who has a spirit entity attach at the pub thereafter becomes even more fixated on getting their next drink, or a heroine or ice junkie seems all that much more intent on scoring their next hit and seems all the more unable to let go of this addiction, even though their conscious mind may truly desire being clean.

Spirit entities take a tendency in a person and exacerbate it making it more intense and more difficult to deal with and this is also the case with MPD. A spirit entity by itself is unlikely to cause fully-fledged MPD, however, for someone who already has this tendency, a spirit entity is highly likely to make things much worse and this is the same in some cases of Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder and the like.

Entities cause sudden, abrupt impulses that the person believes to be their own. In the case of someone with MPD, it will be even more difficult to identify the spirit entity and therefore take action to get rid of it.

Do People Feel Taken Over When They Have A Spirit Entity?

Entities are experts in the field of camouflage. Their influence is insidious and sends impulses such as thoughts or desires from unseen depths in the hosts psyche. These are not usually spoken messages, but rather compulsive uncontrollable desires, addictions and/or inner confusion, along with a host of aches and pains and sometimes even serious physical illness and disease symptoms.

Spirit entities interfere with the client’s consciousness, choices and decisions and poison free will. As long as hosts haven’t undergone some kind of scanning process, they will usually have no idea that they have been attached to though they will be all too aware of the difficulties that the attachment is causing them. There are of course extreme cases which result in mental illness where a spirit entity will push someone to commit violent crime, however, these are thankfully relatively few and far between.

How Does One Catch A Spirit Entity?

Under normal circumstances, the human system has a natural layer of protection which efficiently shields it from attachment by foreign energies and entities. It is when these natural defense mechanisms are overridden that entities have the opportunity to come in.

Collapse of the natural defense system may occur in a number of situations such as:

  • During shocks and traumas. In a car accident, during a war where there is bombing and gunfire or during earth-quakes or other natural disasters where fear is at a premium.
  • The collapse of a defense mechanism can also take place in the case of very sick people whose energy is highly depleted i.e. in a major chronic disease, after losing blood or consciousness in an accident or during an illness.
  • General anesthetics are one of the most frequent situations where modern people go through a complete or near-complete collapse of all energetic defense systems. Surgeons pay a lot of attention to physical factors of contamination but, sadly, totally disregard the energetic side resulting in spirit entity attachment during surgery. Hospitals are a haven for spirit entity attachments due to the number of people who die within them and do not pass over correctly for whatever reason.
  • Drugs and alcohol intoxication can also result in a temporary collapse of the energy body’s natural defense mechanisms. Alcoholics and drug users are therefore part of the high-risk categories for spirit entity attachment.

Natural shielding is also lessened as one enters into Spiritual Realms. As we seek to explore these realms more fully Spirit allows us to then begin learning how to protect ourselves much as parents step back from their children as they grow so that they can more fully experience every aspect of life.

What’s The Relationship Between Miscarriage And Spirit Entities?

Natural protection mechanisms can also collapse during the delivery of a baby. After the physical placenta has been released, it sometimes happens that the energies of the placenta remain unreleased and can resemble something very similar to an entity. This is also apparent after miscarriage and can result in further problems if not cleared from the woman.

A fetus isn’t just a physical being. They are also made up of non-physical, energetic parts and during a miscarriage or termination, the physical part of the fetus is eliminated for whatever reason. However, the energetic parts of the body do not always accompany the physical remains and may stay within the uterus to form a spirit entity. This can also occur in the case of twins where one twin passes or is absorbed by the other prior to birth. Attachment can then occur in either the surviving twin or the mother.

If the entity can be detected and cleared early, there are usually few or no consequences, however, if the spirit entity is allowed to stay undetected, it can, over time be responsible for all manner of gynecological problems ranging from premenstrual tension to malignant abdominal tumors or recurrent unexplained miscarriage. This is the reason that women should as a matter of course, following a delivery, miscarriage or termination be checked for spirit entity attachment by a clearance professional.
